No he wasn't. He said to not resist evil. Meaning to take no action against those who would harm you. To give to anyone who asks, to walk two miles with those that FORCE you to walk one. And to love your enemy. This was Christ's philosophy and it had nothing to do with striking back or defending one's self.

He saved the women who committed adultery by laying out the sin of the one's who wanted to stone her to death.
But not with a gun or sword. With words.

He wants those who love him to protect themselves. Jesus was sent to earth to die for our sins.
Got any scriptural basis for that?

It is our God given right to be able to protect ourselves.
Got any scriptural basis for this?

Read: 1 Timothy 5:8
"But If anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

This has nothing to do with self defense. This is instruction for how to treat one another especially family. You're taking it WAY out of context and twisting it to agree with your world view. 5-16 are about the treatment of widows. I never knew how dishonest a christian you were.
